Leading criteria search platform, Knowledge Bank has brought in a new sales and marketing manager as it kicks off ambitious growth plans for the year. By the end of 2022 Knowledge Bank plans to make a number of key hires to expand and evolve its multi-award-winning platform.
Laura Smith joins Knowledge Bank from Fleet Mortgages where she spent six years working in sales and marketing.
Knowledge Bank has seen exponential growth since its launch in 2017 and had another record month for turnover in March 2022. The latest hire and expansion plans follow the acquisition of a significant shareholding in the business by Ying Tan in December of last year.
The prominent fintech is also recruiting for various new roles, including: full stack engineers, database engineers, DevOps engineers, telephone business development managers and a sales director.
Founder and CEO, Nicola Firth explained: “Laura brings a wealth of experience to the role and we’re thrilled to have her on board at this stage in our growth. Her appointment kicks off a rapid expansion plan, and the next year will be a pivotal one for Knowledge Bank as we grow our team and launch a truly revolutionary suite of products for both brokers and lenders.
“Innovation is in our DNA and the time is right for us to scale up. It has been an exceptional few years for Knowledge Bank as we have led the charge in digitising criteria research solutions. Now we are in a unique position in the market place to be able to utilise what we have built and captured so far to push the boundaries even further within the mortgage fintech space.”
Laura Smith commented that she was attracted to Knowledge Bank because of the strength of their brand and proposition and their constant innovation in the mortgage space. She said: “The Knowledge Bank platform is essential for both lenders and brokers in this age. Its proven track record is a great foundation on which to build on and I’m excited to join the team at this stage of their growth.
